As a member of the Darden family of restaurants, Red Lobster wants the warm and caring experience to extend beyond its restaurant walls into every community it serves. Darden has identified and supports partners that empower the Hispanic community such as:-- ASPIRA: Donated funds to support the rollout of the Youth Leadership Development drop-out prevention program for ASPIRA Clubs and schools. -- Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI): Supported the CHCI Summer Internship Program and CHCI's Hispanic Heritage Month Awards program. -- Hispanic Scholarship Fund: Provided 2012 grant from the Darden Restaurants Foundation in support of $2,500 scholarships and academic support services for 40 students. -- League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC): Sponsored the Washington Youth Leadership Seminar and Youth Leadership Development Program. -- National Council of La Raza (NCLR): Supported the What If? College Readiness Program.
"We understand that communicating directly to our Hispanic guests is imperative," said Marquina. "This campaign and our ongoing commitment to the Hispanic community allow us to welcome these guests into our restaurant in a much more relevant way, which is exciting as we look to become their go-to place for delicious seafood and everyday celebrations."
